“Where to go first?”
For us Career Girls, we work hard, but we also…shop hard and play hard. Earning the much-deserved cash gives us a really strong want need to spend a little (or a lot) and treat ourselves. The question is, what should we buy?
“Maybe I should put some of this in the bank…”
The practical side of each of us makes us pause and think about whether we should just take the check or money straight to the bank.
“I’m rich, everyone! Make it rain!”
The minute you get that check, cash, or bonus, it can feel like you’re on top of the world.
“Oh my gosh, how much longer until the next one?”
